Silver Star
Where is it? British Columbia, Canada
Why go? Family-friendly village, easy access to the slopes

Slopes 1155m to 1915m
Lifts 12
Pistes 3065 acres

Silver Star is a small, quiet, family-friendly resort based around a traffic-free square that resembles a 19th century mining town, with brightly painted buildings and wooden walkways. There’s also a natural ice rink on a lake and a tubing hill nearby. Nearly all the accommodation is either ski-in/ski-out or less than 30 seconds’ walk from the snow. The slopes suit all standards, with a mixture of intermediate cruising and single and double-black diamond tree runs. The ski school is highly regarded.
But… 
Village may be too small and apr├Ęs too quiet for some tastes; modest ski area by Alpine standards.

Loads of Lights and Mirrors on Linton Street

Loads of mirrors and light…..the best way to expand smaller spaces….a bit of 'go big or go home!'

A vintage 60's Murano glass chandelier was a great find in Camden Passage. Reflected in the bevelled glass mirror of the living area wall, it gives a great glow and sparkle to the living area.

Little French sixties drops over the kitchen work areas are fun and give  the ceiling interest when lit. We worked hard to stay away from the 'landing lights' ceiling effect with recessed fixtures.

The front hall lights up with another vintage chandelier in a mid century Hollywood Regency style, a classic accent to the black and white tile flooring.

The Linton Street Kitchen

The kitchen (with dining area) at Linton Street flows into the main living area and out to the garden. The work area is designed along one wall to maximize the space and minimize the kitchen feel. Two work stations at each end of the run accommodate drinking and cooking. Built in fridges swing open to each work area. One stocked with fresh veg and cooking ingredients next to the teppanyaki grill, induction hob and steam oven. Just to the side of the coffee machine the second fridge is filled with drinks and is great for overflow food stuffs when entertaining. Under the coffee machine is the dishwasher so clean up does not interfere with cooking.
